Hometown Heroes Walk
June 1 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Food Allergy Research & Education’s (FARE) Hometown Heroes Walk will come to Duluth on June 1, 2019, celebrating the everyday heroes in our community – families, educators, health professionals, emergency responders, food workers and more – whose dedication helps keep the 32 million Americans with food allergies safe.
Duluth’s Hometown Heroes Walk will be held at Leif Erickson Park – Lakewater and will create a safe, welcoming environment where all those affected by food allergies can unite to share inspiration and forge lasting connections while raising much needed funds for programs that advance FARE’s mission to improve the quality of life and health of individuals with food allergies and provide hope through the promise of new treatments.
Proceeds of FARE’s walks have funded cutting-edge research, world-class educational programs that help individuals live well with food allergies, grassroots advocacy that has expanded access to life-saving epinephrine in schools and other public places, and awareness campaigns that have elevated the profile of food allergy nationally.
